Note: NVIDIA Tesla cards have license limitations
Systems using NVIDIA Tesla-based GPUs, including M60, M10, and M6, are subject to licensing restrictions which may further reduce the available number of monitors or their available resolutions. For systems using Tesla-based GPUs, only licensed displays and resolutions will use GRID functionality. For more information, see NVIDIA’s Grid Licensing User Guide
Info: Display limitations on Microsoft Azure
Graphics Agents running on Microsoft Azure may be limited to a single 2560x1600 display, depending on the state of NVIDIA GRID licensing.
Consumer-grade NVIDIA GPUs in Windows 10 PCs
In addition to the Quadro and Tesla GPUs listed here, it is possible to use certain NVIDIA consumer-grade GPUs with Windows 10 physical PCs. PCoIP agent machines using these cards require special configuration and have limitations beyond those documented in this guide. For more information and detailed instructions, see Teradici Cloud Access Software Instructions for Consumer Grade NVIDIA GPUs in the Teradici Knowledge Base.
The following cards have been tested and are known to work. Additional cards will likely work, but have not been tested:
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
- NVIDIA Quadro 2000
- NVIDIA Quadro P650
|Microsoft Azure||AMD Radeon MI25||19.Q4.1||Download instructions|
AWS EC2 G4 instances must be configured with an NVIDIA GRID Quadro Virtual Data Center Workstation license. ↩
